    This isn't Marc Gasol from five years ago. He's much older and hasn't really been good for a couple of years.

    It’s always been that way. Only a handful of teams have a legit title shot each year.

    Some of us respect LeBron’s greatness.

    You serious?

    Gasol shot 38% from 3, grabbed 6 boards and had 2.2 defensive win shares and extremely high bball IQ. He is also a professional wont complain about anything or cause drama. He is the perfect complement to AD and Harrell no wonder they kicked Dwight to the curb.

    Tbh I'm not sure how the Lakers got all these quality players when they are paying Lebron and AD the multi max. Rox are capped out just from Harden and WB, Lakers keep signing all these great contributors.

    Gasol/Harrell/Javale Mcgee
    AD/Harrell/Lebron
    Lebron/Kuzma
    KCP/Carusso
    Schroeder/TLT

    This is easily the most talented and deepest team Lebron has ever had. It is totally on par with KD's GSW, GSW had more all stars but Lakers have more depth and better stars. They can even trade Kuzma for somebody else wtf.

    Rox need to go rebuild mode cuz we aint winning **** the next 3 years.

    ??? Where you been the NBA has always been like this. During Jordan's era it was just 1 team that mattered and before that only 2 teams mattered.

    Anthony Davis opting out gives them cap space I assume. Since he hasn't resigned yet. Then they can go way over the cap to retain him.

    Personally I don't care what bigs the Lakers pick up. Seems like they didn't learn anything from playing the Rockets last year. They dominated us with AD at the five. We ran them off the court when they played 2 bigs. If we keep our team I'll be happy if they go back to playing two bigs.

    Nah man Lakers are like a tool box right now, they can go super big to small ball. Ibaka is good but Gasol is better.

    Plus they are Team Glass. Bev and Kawhi are always injured and Playoff P cant shoot for ****. Sweet Lou cant defend. After the fail last season Kawhi doesnt have a blank check for DNP - Rest anymore. I highly doubt Clippers or any other team can beat the Lakers.

    They already know they can beat the Rox with AD Lebron fc, now they added Schroeder for even more perimeter defense.

    AD/Lebron/Carusso/KCP/Schroeder will just stifle and destroy the Rox.

    The other signings are for other teams like Portland or Denver who have lots of bigs. It is also for regular season to preserve wear and tear on Lebron and AD. Thats been the problem with the Rox with MDA its always about the regular season and not the playoffs.

    The Denis acquisition for the Lakers alone makes them a better team. The Rondo hot streak was a fluke, the Lakers man...geez.

    Even with Harden and Westrbook, Rockets can't even match the Lakers.
